This was our second trip to the area, and we chose Playa Cielo again. It is near the end of the busiest part of town, but well within walking distance to a variety of shops, restaurants, surf breaks, etc. The on-site restaurant/bar "Habenaros" is well known as a great sunset/happy hour spot. The food is well prepared. Even if you...

We have been to Costa Rica many times and Cielo is the best. Location is truely ocean front with beautiful landscaping and a perfect pool location. Convenient to a variety of restaurants, many surf breaks and other activities. One great feature is the ability to just chill and have a relaxed day, and eat a top meal right on the...

A beautiful place for rest and tranquility. Ida was very helpful and the restaurant staff were very nice. The roads there are a bit rough so most people fly there from San Jose or take a bus from Ferry. Then you can rent either an ATV or dirt bike in St. Teresa. We rented a car from SJ and it...

I'm writing this review with a few days left on our trip here in Santa Teresa and I will try to not only review Playa Cielo, but also Santa Teresa and our favorite places we found while staying here. My wife and I are from Alaska and it was a long ways away from home, so reviews on trip advisor...

There is still no better spot to stay than Playa Cielo!! Clean bright rooms right on the beach. Amazing landscaping, and the most wonderful welcoming and...

This review is long overdue! Beautiful accommodations and a reasonable rate compared to other beachfront Santa Teresa hotels. My husband and I came here to get married with two weeks notice, we eloped by ourselves. Eti, the manager, and all the staff were warm and welcoming and felt like good friends by the end of our stay. Everyone bent over...

Spent our 40th honeymoon here. Eti and the staff made it a true 5 star experience for us. The facilities and restaurant were all we needed. Staff and even the friendly iguanas were most welcoming. Beach and setting sun were so romantic. Honeymoon or anniversary it is perfect.

There are only 4 cabins here. Super cute and beachfront. Cool outside shower, awesome air conditioner, always needed here, quiet and peaceful. The staff is always eager to help. The restaurant Habeneros is in front. Very good food, best place for sunsets in Santa Teresa beachfront. Great holiday! Ah! pura Vida! The only downfall would be having to pay the...
